Gardens for Health International believes that growing and eating healthy food can – and must – be a part of the long-term solution to malnutrition.
The world is facing an acute food and nutrition crisis. People must meet the world’s food needs with an approach that is environmentally sustainable, recognizes the primacy of nutrition for agriculture and health and strengthens local communities.
Through its work, Garden for Health International are changing the way that malnutrition is treated by moving away from short-term handouts and towards equipping families with the knowledge and resources to grow their own nutritious food and improve their health. It envisions a future in which the key to lasting food and nutrient security for vulnerable families lies in their own backyards.
